Peritonsillar Abscess in Early Childhood: Presentation

and Management

Rande Lazar, a Memphis otolaryngologist with a primary focus in pediatric ear, nose, and throat disorders, is quite familiar with many disorders that affect children, including peritonsillar abscesses.

Usually evidenced by high fever, drooling, and poor oral intake, these abscesses can be treated effectively and safely by the coupling of prompt diagnosis and tonsillectomy. A tomographic scan of the neck is usually a required step for diagnosing the problem.

At the Memphis Ear Nose and Throat blog, you can find a whitepaper that Dr. Lazar has written about how to diagnose and treat peritonsillar abscesses.
